Former Alice In Chains bassist arrested, 4/4/05



Former Alice In Chains bassist charged with vandalism

We don’t have a lot of details about this yet, but KIRO 7 Eyewitness news in Seattle is reporting that Michael Starr was arrested last night for "investigation of property destruction and theft."

Just who in the fuck is Michael Starr? No, that’s not the singer for Metal Skool, numb-nuts. You’re thinking of Micheal Star. That’s different. The Michael Starr in question is the former bassist for Alice In Chains, more properly known as Michael Christopher Starr. He played with AIC up until January 1993, when he decided to leave the band (a.k.a. got kicked out) just as Alice In Chains were really starting to take off. He was then replaced with bassist Mike Inez. Maybe he spent years kicking himself in the ass for that, but who knows. Live and learn.

Allegedly, Mr. Starr was spotted pulling the hood ornament off someone’s car in Seattle late last night. The guy who owned the car called the police and they came and arrested the culprit.

Rumors that the vehicle in question was a 1978 Ford Pinto wagon with fake wood siding cannot be confirmed or denied at this time.

Incidentally, today (April 4th) is Michael Starr’s birthday! Guess he’s having his cake in the clink.
